As I unpacked the horror of my stashes became all too apparent from yarn to fabric to paper. I have them in abundance. Where to put it all was the question, and the solution of course is to use it.
The Scarecrow ( see knit and natter) is using up a goodly amount but only in small bits. So I was delighted to discover a lady in town via Facebook visits several Care Homes as she goes to entertain the residents, and has come up with a scheme to further cheer up people. She appealed for handmade bird tables and lap blankets.Say no more- one lap blanket under construction.
Probably don’t need any more pink squares.
And then there was the fabric… I managed somehow to sew some dresses for Little Miss F when she was just a dot, so I decided to use the scraps from them and some toys I made her to make her a fabric box.
Six sides completed- now to line them and stitch together to make a box.
I’m sorry that all I have is half done things this month, but at least I may have some finishes soon to write about. Please pop over to Kate’s blog for some links to other Scrap Happy posts- link here
